We make orchard operations more productive and more profitable by automating year-round tasks, reducing labour costs, and increasing pack out rates through better fruit handling.

The Right Platform For Your Orchard

Harvesting fruit is the culmination of all the work you’ve put in to achieve optimum yield and ripeness. We don’t need to tell you that getting it right means everything for orchard profitability.

At Galaxy Group, we have the right platform to suit any orchard system. Our range of Belt Platforms, Tethered Platforms, and Standard Platforms make orchard teams more productive by enabling them to complete tasks faster. Pack out increases of at least 5% are easily achievable through gentler handling of fruit and less bruising.

Platforms make orchard work safer and easier by eliminating health and safety risks associated with ladders and picking bags. Better working conditions contribute to a more productive labour force and enable experienced orchard labour to keep working in the industry for longer.

Galaxy Group Service

At Galaxy Group, we’ve made it our business to know more about orchard platforms and how they apply to orchard systems in New Zealand and Australia than any other company. From the outset, we’re right behind you with training and service backup, as well as regular communication to ensure your equipment is doing the job as expected.

“The Galaxy guys have been incredibly supportive. They’re passionate about what they do and have really made an effort to help us understand how to make the Tecno machines work for us. Support is always there – we’re not just left to work it out for ourselves.”

Murray Booth, CAJ van der Voort, Alexandra.

“ When the Galaxy boys convinced us to trial the new SBX30 Wide Belt, our productivity went from 40 bins a day per platform to 65 bins a day per platform. We only have three weeks to harvest our envy crop and this wider belt definitely helped us get it done faster. ”

Pea Hunt, Eastern Bay Orchards.

“ By the end of the season, productivity with the Tecnofruit platform will probably be 50% higher than it would have been with ladders and picking bags. It’s an absolute no brainer to use this technology to make people more productive. "
